Lewis and Clark College, in Portland Oregon, is situated on exquisite grounds and property dating back to the late 1800’s.  Could there be a more serene and inspiring learning environment?  Thank you for such a warm embrace to your community, and for having me as your keynote speaker and presenter to work on Expansive Education.  It was a true honor.  At the end of the amazing day, one faculty member asked me what I had learned that day.  As a lifelong learner I was reminded of the sometimes overlooked, but hugely impactful effect of environment on learning.  By utilizing the grounds of Lewis and Clark, a heightened level of conversation was born.  To see this dynamic interaction happening was truely invigorating and inspiring!
